Kontron is announcing that beginning in the third quarter 2015, new boards and modules will be based on the new Intel Celeron and Pentium Processors N3000 product family. The new products from Kontron will be more powerful and more energy efficient than prior generation products. The focus is on the development of especially low-noise systems where one of many features is that CPUs do not need any active cooling. For POI/POS or applications demanding high graphics quality, the boards and modules support independent 4K display devices.
The Intel Celeron and Pentium Processors N3000 product family is based on Intel’s next generation of system-on-a-chip (SoC) processors. They include multicore processors based on a new microarchitecture and manufactured on Intel’s 14nm tri-gate manufacturing process. This product family is primarily targeted at cost-sensitive all-in-one computer architectures with powerful graphics.
This new product family will make it possible to develop power systems with optimised energy efficiency. Thanks to the low power dissipation, passive cooling is easily possible for the CPUs that are used. This feature means that the overall system is particularly low noise and maintenance free, and is consequently especially suitable for environments calling for virtually silent technology.
In addition, these systems offer 3D graphics performance that is twice as high as the predecessors, while offering 4K display resolutions. There are additionally advantages to high-resolution video encoding of H.264 and decoding of H.264 and H.265 video streams.
